MTV's 90-minute documentary on Britney Spears -- " Britney Spears: For the Record" -- will air Nov. 30. just two days before the release of her new album, "Circus."  And yes, she does talk about her meltdown period in the doc.  "I sit there and I look back," she says in the interview, "I'm a smart person, what ... was I thinking?"

The show combines documentary footage, personal stories and behind-the-scenes video of her in rehearsals in the studio, evBritneyfragranceen back in her hometown in Lousiana. To watch a clip, click HERE.

"So much has gone on over the last couple of years and there's a lot that people don't know about me that I want them to know," Spears told MTV News. "I wanted to make this film because I started to feel like I wasn't being seen in the light that I wanted to be seen in. This is an opportunity to set the record straight and talk about what I've been through and where I'm headed."

But if you just can't wait until Nov. 30 for a Britney fix, her new music video for "Womanizer" debuts on ABC's 20/20 tonight. And the ads for her brand new fragrance -- Hidden Fantasy -- are already making the rounds on the Web.

According to a fragrance site, the bottle is similar to those of her earlier scents except it's red. Which totally makes sense since the scent is cherry vanilla.

In case you don't remember, Britney's previous fragrances were Curious, Fantasy, Curious: In Control, Midnight Fantasy, Curious Heart, and Believe.

The new scent should be wafting into stores in December. Boy, time sure does fly. We can recall a time, not too many months ago, when NO one in their right mind would have wanted to smell like Britney Spears.

What do you think? Are you amazed at how quickly Britney's mental problems went away? Anyone want to know what really went on? Was it all just prescription mood-altering drugs? Any theories?
